I think it's silly trying to intellectualize this. Most bands used "gore" as a theme because of a loss of what to include in the lyrics, same goes with the overtly "satanic" bands. Although I suppose a minority had some kind of conceptual purpose behind the gore, like Carcass (even though they were coming from a leftist and vegan direction - super homo).
QuoteFor a short period around the turn of the 1990s, however, the genre's compulsive need to outflank itself spiralled into genuine evil. The Californian quartet Slayer coined the loudest, fastest, ugliest sound to date, with one song, Angel of Death, relating the horrors of Josef Mengele's Auschwitz. In Norway, a small network of bands plunged headlong into Satanism, and torched some churches around Oslo. In 1993, Varg Vikernes, aka Burzum, murdered his main rival.
Metal had reached its furthest perimeter, and has since retreated a considerable distance.
Where do you go from there? Hmm.
say fuck it and finaly delve into classical?
No, and I don't think my post conveys that. This is a thread of extremes. No one can really handle that this is just "decent" or "ok".
I'm not sure I should have bumped this thread at all though. Maybe it's time for us to move on...
In the context of past Burzum it's pretty fucking awfull, just like Anthems is a turd with ITNSE in context.
